2) You may contact the SAIS (Student Accommodation and Information Service) for support in the search for housing in the private market and for help with rental agreements. 

The SAIS supports exchange students in finding accommodation in the university residences, colleges, short-stay accommodation or in private rented property.

The service is free of charge.
